Muscle Pain

Inflammation associated with polymyositis causes muscle pain and tenderness. Pain usually occurs during or after physical activity, but inactivity for long periods may also result in muscle soreness. A medical professional can help develop an exercise plan to accommodate individual symptoms.4‘What Is Polymyositis?’ Myositis Support and Understanding, understandingmyositis.org/myositis/polymyositis/

Weakness in one muscle group may lead to overuse of a different group of muscles to compensate. This may result in muscle pain due to overexertion, strain or injury.4‘What Is Polymyositis?’ Myositis Support and Understanding, understandingmyositis.org/myositis/polymyositis/
